in pennsylvania. pennsylvania has been fool's gold for years. john mccain went there at the end of the campaign last time. george w. bush went there at the end of the campaign in 2004. in the end, i think, they can't crack ohio and because they can't crack ohio, they've got to look somewhere else. they are looking are to pennsylvania, minnesota. i don't think they are going to win either of those states. >> now, the campaign's closing argument, we keep talking about closing arguments but they sound very similar to the opening arguments. listen to this. >> i'll lead america to a better place. this is not a time for america to settle. we're four days away from a fresh start. four days away from the fresh day of a new beginning. >> america has always done best when everybody has a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules. that's what we believe. that's why you elected me in 2008 and that's why i'm running for second term as president of the united states of america. >> so we're still basically talking about fairness and about a new direction? >>

as john mccain did, as other republicans have over the last 12, 20 years, and they never carried the state. >> so why -- with that number, and the -- with the polling that has taken place in pennsylvania, what message is out there that gives the romney camp the idea they can win pennsylvania? why would they waste days in pennsylvania and not ohio and florida? >> i think they're worried that they can't crack ohio. the president went out there, defined mitt romney in the summer, mitt romney made some progress after that first debate, but ohio settled back down around where it was, i think really five or six points in the president's favor. so they have this dishonest ad on saying jeep is going to ship its jobs to china. and the great irony of that ad, by the way, in a news broadcast in ohio, you can see 22 consecutive political ads, the newscasters says romney has a fake ad about jobs being shipped to china. let's go to commercial break and you see the ad. so the ad is preemptively denounced. >> what about pennsylvania? could there be the calculation here that because of the storm, the easte

a whopping 66% of the youth vote in 2008. compared to senator john mccain who got just 32%. according to a new poll by the center for information and research on civic learning engagement, if the election were held today, the president would carry 52% of the youth vote compared to governor romney's 35%. now, obviously a 717-point spread is nothing to -- a 17-point spread is nothing to bark at but the obama team is hoping to get closer to the 2008 spread. to rally this important voting block, they're dispatching high profile surrogates like actor cal penn to universities across the country especially in the last days. >> everyone who comes to our youth events tends to have a reason why they're there. in 2012, it's because they're better off. their buddies are home from iraq. my friends that didn't have healthcare access have it. >> jennifer: that was cal in north carolina which is a state that president obama only carried by 14,000 votes in 2008. and tonight we're so happy to welcome cal penn back inside "the war room."

and this is a republican part of the state, that john mccain was going to lose, that senator obama was going to carry ohio, and the winner of ohio almost always wins the white house. that is a big open question this time and today, this is just one stop, today, though, anecdotally, there's more energy, more passion, they're working harder at the republican offices because they think they can surprise us on election day and make up that gap. to be clear, the obama campaign has had a lot of time and a lot of money because he didn't have a primary challenge. so this is going to be a test of whether the president spent his money wisely when the republicans were fighting amongst themselves on a turnout operation, but this final weekend in ohio, feels a whole lot different than the final weekend four years ago. >> john, david, gloria, appreciate it. thanks very much. >>> there's obviously going to be a lot more about politics in the days ahead, over the weekend and monday and tuesday, of course. i really do tonight want to focus on what's happening here and all around this region because there's just a lot of f

i checked, piers, he's the commander in chief. i can't imagine a john mccain not sending the american military in at the earliest possible moment and not worrying about what libya or libyans might have thought. it was clear for months that libya was incapable of protecting our diplomats. the british pulled out. the red cross pulled out. our diplomats were begging for more security and that consulate had been attacked twice, once with a hole 12 feet wide. what else did the president of the united states need? did somebody have to bang him on the head? what did he need to go in there and make sure that our people were properly protected? this is what happens when you elect someone president of the united states who isn't ready to lead. who wants the lead by following. >> do you believe as some republicans do that the white house or certainly people close to the white house were aware of what was happening on that fateful night and decided not to do anything? >> they either were aware of it and decided not to do anything or they were asleep at the switch. either one leads to

they're at two things going on. one is what else is going on in the world of the time? john mccain made a comment about he was asked a question about what would he do in iran and someone said an air mail message and he went on saying singing bob bob ran. very few people remember that a lot of things were happening in the world at the time. nobody carried it on. i compare that to hillary clinton's statement about being under fire in bosnia. it was time after time after time until the media started to say well is this really chew and all of a sudden they pulled up a picture of her being greeted at the airport being greeted by a girl with a bunch of flowers and there is a general in the ground saying there was no fire and the obama people start to say you might want to look at her credibility on these things and it was so dramatic that we don't like people to lie to us. this is about as close as a presidential candidate obama looking at fellow democrats saying she lied to us. who else is pushing it is important. and i think it's explainable. you have a candidate who is in sioux falls south
